Iceberg Wedges with Lemon Dressing and Bacon

This is a perfectly delightful and simple dish.  The dressing is just five ingredients: mayonnaise, lemon juice, hot sauce, Kosher salt, and pepper.  It’s wonderfully acidic, tangy, and just a tiny bit spicy.  It went fabulously with the sweet and crisp Iceberg lettuce.  And with some chopped homemade bacon on the top, it was amazing.  Here’s the recipe:

Iceberg Wedges with Lemon Dressing and Bacon, based on this recipe from Epicurious.com

1 head Iceberg lettuce, quartered,

2/3 cup mayonnaise

about 2 T of lemon juice, or to taste

1 tsp hot sauce (such as Frank’s), or to taste

Kosher salt and pepper to taste

about 1/2 cup just cooked bacon, chopped

Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, hot sauce, Kosher salt, and pepper together in a small bowl.  Taste and adjust any seasoning.  Place an Iceberg wedge on a plate and drizzle dressing over the top.  Sprinkle with 1/4 of the bacon bits.  Repeat 3 more times.  Serve immediately. 

And here’s a picture of it with a BLT.
